na tatra dutam na pituh kalevaram
prabuddha ajau samapasyad acyutah
svapnam yatha cambara-carinam ripum
saubha-stham alokya nihantum udyatah
Now alert to the actual situation, Lord Acyuta saw before Him on the battlefield neither the messenger nor His father’s body. It was as if He had awakened from a dream. Seeing His enemy flying above Him in his Saubha plane, the Lord then prepared to kill him.
